Professional Objectives:   

“My personal objective is to allow my patients to feel welcome, comfortable, and cared for. I am dedicated to helping my patients overcome mental health challenges by providing culturally competent, wellness focused, and nonjudgmental care to my patients and their families. As a healthcare professional, I believe that I was given the opportunity to help support others and decrease the stigma that surrounds mental health.”


Theoretical Orientation: 

“I believe that the treatment of psychiatric disorders should encompass the mind, body, and spirit of each individual person, combined with the most up-to-date and evidence-based research on psychiatric medications. Utilizing holistic approaches and psychiatric medications together may help individuals function to their best ability and may improve their quality of life.”
